Amazon Web Services- AWS Audit Manager

Things you should know about AWS Audit Manager

AWS Cloud indeed has been able to bring tremendous positive changes in Cloud Solutions to B2C and B2B industries to work more accurately and faster with its built-in compliance control system. However, recently, these compliance-driven industries working with AWS Cloud had to manually use their networks to compare their last approved state with their current state. And on top of that, their compliance requirements during the auditing season is to ensure their programs were up to the benchmark.

Although simple as it seems, this process gets very time-consuming that could even take weeks of time and effort from the employees. Also, as this process may involve tracking every single detail and intensive record-keeping, it somehow could distract the employees from their actual organizational goal that may not work well in the long run. Therefore, for this problem, Amazon Web Services introduced AWS Audit Manager as a solution. In simple words, it is a new automation service from AWS Cloud Toolkit that could help you meet and now automate too.

So, in this blog, I will be focusing on the things you should know about AWS Audit Manager. But before digging into the audit manager concepts of AWS, let us first understand what the word Auditing means.

How to Upload to Amazon S3 via AWS CLI and NPM scripts

Static websites are a brilliant way to create performant sites. My website is built using Gatsby and hosted on Amazon S3. I have created a simple script to help you quickly upload your site to S3 by running one simple command in your project terminal.

Prerequisites

Before we start, you must ensure that you have completed the following:

  • Install AWS CLI (Amazon Web Services Command Line Interface) on your machine.
  • Create a bucket in Amazon S3 (this is where we will be uploading our project files to).

This guide assumes that you have some familiarity navigating the AWS Console and each Amazon Web Service.

An Introduction to Infrastructures for WEB projects in AWS

Let’s review a particular project in detail and the cost of infrastructure maintenance. And so, we have an internal WEB application that consists of a static website on React, a backend on Go, and a database DynamoDB. All code is stored on Github and for CI/CD we use Github Actions. The infrastructure code is defined in Terraform.

Infrastructure

All traffic from clients is received by CloudFront, which acts as a CDN. With it, we can increase page load speed and reduce the load on the backend and frontend by requests caching.

Further, depending on the requested prefix (all except /api/* goes to the frontend part) requests go to S3 or ALB. S3 has the functionality to serve static websites, so it is fully suitable for this task, it is also possible to implement different types of routing depending on the requests.

At ALB, we authorize clients using AWS Cognito, which has extensive functionality for working with different types of authorization and registration.

Important note: when using the ALB+CloudFront bunch, remember to close your balancers (so that traffic can only go through CloudFront), as this will help you avoid problems with direct attacks on the balancer (DDoS). And for more protection, use WAF and Shield services.

And later we transfer the execution request to AWS ECS (Fargate) cluster. Thanks to this, we get autoscaling basically from the box, the ability to configure access to other resources (IAM), logs and metrics (sent to CloudWatch), and much more.

AWS Docker registry stores Docker images which will be later used in ECS. Thanks to the image tagging policy as well as the image rotation, we have achieved efficient and easy work during deploys and troubleshooting sessions.

AWS Fargate for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service | Caylent

On-demand cloud computing brings new ways to ensure scalability and efficiency. Rather than pre-allocating and managing certain server resources or having to go through the usual process of setting up a cloud cluster, apps and microservices can now rely on on-demand serverless computing blocks designed to be efficient and highly optimized.

Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) already makes running Kubernetes on AWS very easy. Support for AWS Fargate, which introduces the on-demand serverless computing element to the environment, makes deploying Kubernetes pods even easier and more efficient. AWS Fargate offers a wide range of features that make managing clusters and pods intuitive.

Utilizing Fargate
As with many other AWS services, using Fargate to manage Kubernetes clusters is very easy to do. To integrate Fargate and run a cluster on top of it, you only need to add the command –fargate to the end of your eksctl command.

EKS automatically configures the cluster to run on Fargate. It creates a pod execution role so that pod creation and management can be automated in an on-demand environment. It also patches coredns so the cluster can run smoothly on Fargate.

A Fargate profile is automatically created by the command. You can choose to customize the profile later or configure namespaces yourself, but the default profile is suitable for a wide range of applications already, requiring no human input other than a namespace for the cluster.

There are some prerequisites to keep in mind though. For starters, Fargate requires eksctl version 0.20.0 or later. Fargate also comes with some limitations, starting with support for only a handful of regions. For example, Fargate doesn’t support stateful apps, DaemonSets or privileged containers at the moment. Check out this link for Fargate limitations for your consideration.

Support for conventional load balancing is also limited, which is why ALB Ingress Controller is recommended. At the time of this writing, Classic Load Balancers and Network Load Balancers are not supported yet.

However, you can still be very meticulous in how you manage your clusters, including using different clusters to separate trusted and untrusted workloads.

Everything else is straightforward. Once the cluster is created, you can begin specifying pod execution roles for Fargate. You have the ability to use IAM console to create a role and assign it to a Fargate cluster. Or you can also create IAM roles and Fargate profiles via Terraform.
